“The Good, the Bad and the Ugly”
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Our family of 5 camped in a tent for 5 nights. Ok, here is the good: pool, jacuzzi, ping pong, lots of kid activities, shady camp site, very helpful and friendly employees, very close to redwood walking trails. Here is the bad: camp sites/RV sites are VERY close together. Here is the ugly part: the hot water in the shower stalls fluctuate from scalding hot (two of my kids got burned) to freezing cold. You couldn't get a stable temperature for more than 10 seconds no matter what time of the day or night you were showering. The campground does show its age, especially the bathrooms/showers and could definitely be modernized and upgrade the water lines to prevent the temperature fluctuation problems. Our campsite was right next to the river and the bugs were not bad at all. Although there was not much water in the river this late in the summer. We heard coyotes almost every night, sometimes very close to our tent so keep small pets inside and keep food and trash disposed of. All in all we would recommend this campground, especially if you have kids.

We stayed for 1 night on a trip through town. There wasn't much choice in this town, so we ended up staying here.
Pluses: very quiet, foresty, campground-style, cozy, nice people around, very nice owners, heating worked well (although rattled pretty loud at times).
Minuses: very small, bit dirty feeling, found spiders and hairs in the bed, some walls have "unknown" liquid splatter on it.

I traveled with my 16 year old son and his friend. We stayed for two days. The place really is a resort, so much to do! We floated down the river, played minature golf went in giant Jacuzzi, and swam in the pool. We stayed in two of the cabins which is wonderful experience after staying in dingy motel rooms at other locations. It is great location for family reunions. The giant redwoods were magnificent. The managers Dennis and Linda couldn't have been more helpful and professional.

We will be back with our entire extend family.

Clean camp grounds, Easy access to the eel river where you can always find a secluded swimming hole. We felt very comfortableand look forward to coming back again. Close, but not to close to town

Located close to the dean creek, This property is located conveniently close to the avenue of the giants. Considering the array of amenities the value is exceptional. These include horshoes sauna whirlpool minigolf horshoes and a selection of grocery items. We are tent camping and think the setting is fine.

Reserved through what I thought was their website which it wasn't and I was overcharged and instead of the cabin I requested I ended up in one of the dirty rooms and I was basically told by the manager to take a hike if I didn't like it. It is a 1940 era motel with threadbare sheets, mold in the shower, stains in the toilet, febreeze used heavily throughout to mask the odors. Don't waste your money, you would be better off sleeping in your car.

This little strip hotel is tucked practically under the Avenue of the Giants. In fact, a drive-through tree ($6.00 charge) is very nearby.

It looks very ordinary on the outside. However, the rooms, which are standard budget hotel rooms, are decorated with Waverly or Waverly type fabrics, and are pleasing. There is a little store here with only essentials. There is an RV park attached.

We had dinner with us, so did not have to seek out a restaurant. It seemed a little remote, but this could be because we did not drive around on the actual road where it was located.
